95. Killer in Steel City

 

It is a Saturday afternoon on January 5, 2002, when Michael Gerboc drove to the floral store he owned with his partner florist, Ed Kirby, to check up Ed and the store. When Michael arrived and called out for Ed, he didn’t get a response but soon he finds Ed. Ed Kirby, age 48, is on the ground surrounded by a pool of blood. The popular florist had been murdered. He had been shot execution-style in the back of the head so he never saw it coming. A 9-millimeter shell was located nearby. His wallet was missing and the cash register was empty. Michael was devastated. Sadly this would not be the only murder this ruthless coward would be responsible for but there was one final shock that would leave many in disbelief.

93. Living a Lie: Mary and Chester Burge

 

Today we are going back in time where things were a bit more simple. There was no internet or cable tv and children played outside unsupervised until the street lamps came on. Everyone went to church on Sundays in their Sunday best and the American dream was to get married to your true love, own a house, and have 2.5 kids. The year is 1960 and we are going to pay a visit to Macon, Georgia and while a lot has changed in the past 60 years, some things never change like greed, lust, and murder. Join Jen and Cam as we discuss 'Living a Lie: Mary and Chester Burge' on this episode of Our True Crime Podcast.

Just like always, our listener discretion is provided by the dreamy voiced Edward October from @octoberpodVHS and all our awesome (original) music and editing is provided by Nico from @wetalkofdreams.

92 Beyond a Shadow of a Doubt: The Hendricks Family Murders

On November 7, 1983, David Hendricks was out of state on a business trip. Unable to reach his family, Bloomington Illinois Police were sent to do a welfare check.  Inside the house, officers were shocked to find David's  Susan, his three young children brutally murdered in their beds.

Police didn't like the way David handled the news but did that make him a murderer?

91. Shattered Memory

 On Feb 21, 2005, a call comes into Miami 911 dispatch from a man who says there is a woman, unconscious in a vacant lot with what looks to be a head wound. She has no clothes on and is clinging to life. Officials were sure the person who did this thought she was dead or near death when he dumped her in the vacant lot. As she gained her strength, the victim was able to write down her name as well as some other details for police but she could not remember exactly what happened to her or who did it. Can police figure out who committed this brutal crime before he can strike again? Join Jen and Cam as we discuss ‘Shattered Memory’ on this episode of Our True Crime Podcast.

Check out the promo at the end of the episode from our friend Edward from @octoberpodVHS.

90. When Hell Came To The 2nd Floor: The UpStairs Lounge Arson


On the night on June 24, 1973 around 8pm, someone set fire to the UpStairs Lounge a gay bar located in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Thirty-two people lost their lives.

Many think the police failed to really investigate the arson. The official cause is still listed as "undetermined origin", but many believe it was a man that was thrown out of the bar earlier that night.

Almost 50 years later is it still one of New Orleans' deadliest fires. Up until the Pulse Nightclub shooting in 2016, it was the deadliest incident in the history of violence against the LGBTQ community.

Lakewood is home to McChord Air Force Base with lots of its residents supported by the base, many of the residents know one another or at least knows a friend of a friend. The small community of around 59,000 people love the area and feel safe here that is until July 4, 1996, that would all change as a monster would pay a visit to Lakewood and change it forever.

88. Just A Simple Plan: Carl Patton

It is December 20, 1977, when two hunters, out for the afternoon looking to bring home some ducks for Christmas dinner, stumble upon something. Unfortunately for them, that something was not a holiday feast but the body of a woman who, from the looks of it, had been out there for a while.  The men called the police immediately and due to the location, two responding counties arrive, Fayette County and Clayton County. As officers look closer they can easily see what was the cause of death: two gunshot wounds to her head.  As officers are working to secure the scene and collect evidence, it doesn’t take long to notice something else. They see it is a sleeping bag, but when they pull it from the water, they know it is not empty. Once on the banks, another female body is discovered inside the sleeping bag. Investigators are in shock but this case was far from over.

Join Jen and Cam from Our True Crime Podcast as we discuss this week’s episode, ‘Just a Simple Plan.’

SPECIAL: Victims of Injustice: Black Lives Matter




***NOTE:This episode is completely different than normal. OTCP, along with 19 other podcasters from around the world, came together to stand with the BLM movement.  Although we had a very small part in the making of this episode, we are so thrilled to be part of it.

**All proceeds from this episode will be donated to The Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund.  https://thelovelandfoundation.org/loveland-therapy-fund/

As podcasters, we have a platform and duty to speak up and call out injustice. In light of the murder of George Floyd, we have come together in solidarity to use our platform to speak up against racial injustice and amplify the voices of black podcasters that deserve more recognition. Racism is prevalent in all industries; from the media who under-report on black victims to the justice system which routinely fails black victims. In this collaborative episode, we document black history and current events with the voices of those who have lived through it.

86. A Stranger in the Night

*THIS EPISODE INVOLVES DETAILS THAT MAY BE DIFFICULT TO HEAR FOR CERTAIN PEOPLE. Listener discretion is advised. 






It is August 5, 1992, just before midnight when 29-year-old Joan Burghardht returns home to her apartment after a night of having fun with friends. When she got inside, she felt something was not right. It scared her enough to call the police. The police arrived at her house and she explained to them about the missing money, the fan, and that it seemed like her dresser drawers had been messed up as if someone was looking for something. Police took her statement and did a sweep of the house. Whoever was in Joan’s apartment earlier was now gone. Officers told her to keep on a few lights and to make sure all the windows and doors stay locked. Sadly for Joan, this would not be the last visit from a stranger in the dark.

85. Friendship Fraud

Fifty-six-year-old Thomas Jones was a reserved kind of fella. He lived modestly and wanted a simple kind of life so the community of Mulford Delaware provided exactly what he wanted and needed. Thomas lived by himself and was a farmer. He owned and operated a small farm but he was not quite your typical farmer. Thomas was a paraplegic but that didn’t stop him from doing what he loved to do including farming his land.  It was August 13, 1997, when a hired healthcare nurse stopped by to check on Thomas. The nurse called out his name after not answering the door. As she looked around, she knew something was not quite right. Thomas kept a clean and tidy house and things always had their place. There were dishes on the table and a few papers strewn about. His wheelchair was not in the house, so she ventured outside thinking maybe he was just outside. As she was looking around, she saw something and it was not good. There was a splattering of blood in a line as if something was bleeding as it was walking away.  The nurse rushed to call 9-1-1. This is just the start of a twisted tale as it just weirder from here.

84. Broken and Busted: Alyssa Bustamante

On October 21, 2009, a 6-year-old neighbor girl who lives nearby shows up and asks if 9-year-old Elizabeth Olten,  the youngest of Patty Preiss’s children to come over and play for a bit.  At first, Patty said no but we know how convincing two little girls can be and she finally broke and said ok but Elizabeth had to be home by 6 pm for dinner. When 6 pm comes and goes and Elizabeth doesn’t arrive home, her mom knows something is not right. Elizabeth is scared of the dark and would never come home after nightfall. Patty makes a phone call to the neighbor’s house to see what time Elizabeth left their house. Patty is shocked to hear that Elizabeth was never at their house.  Police arrive to investigate and what unfolds is a sick and twisted tale.

It is June 4, 1995, in Fredericton, New Brunswick, when eight-year-old Jackie Clarke goes missing.

That evening, when Jackie didn’t come home, her mother called the parent of one of the friends to see if Jackie was at their house by chance.

82. The Blue Eyed Six





We have another Listener Submitted Script for you today!

The Blue-Eyed Six was a group of men who thought they had a foolproof plan to make money by taking out life insurance policies on an old recluse, named Joseph Raber.  Thinking he was frail and on the verge of death, they hoped for a speedy return on their investment.

This crime became an international sensation  in 1878. In fact, it was so huge, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of Sherlock Holmes, paid homage to the town and the sensational name given to the murderers in his short story 'The Red-Headed League'.

The Blue Eyed Six was researched and written by Listener Amie Felty

81. The Lying Game

It is February 2008 in Arlington Heights Illinois, a suburb of Chicago,  where we first meet a young man by the name of Justin Newman. Justin is a blonde-haired, blue-eyed 20-year old who was working at a home improvement store and trying to figure out what to do with his life. Justin, who lived with his mother, was a generous kid who had been working since he could so that he could help his mom pay the bills. He was a very likable kid, responsible and hard-working. Working at the improvement store, allowed him to meet a lot of construction workers and contractors and one of these contractors was a man by the name of Ari Squire. This chance meeting would leave a trail of destruction. As is so often the case, not all is what it seems.

79. The Murder Game


 

It’s January 18, 1987, at the Alpine Manor Nursing home in Walker, Michigan when a nurse, who was making her rounds, went into the room of a 60-year-old Alzheimer’s patient named Marguerite Chambers. The older woman was unresponsive and not breathing. A team rushed in to revive Marguerite but it was too late. It seems that the woman died sometime during the night. Death is not uncommon in nursing homes but Marguerite was still pretty healthy and her death was not expected. Her family had been in to visit her just the day before and had brought their loved one a balloon bouquet. Her passing was a shock to them but being that she was in a later stage in life, they knew it would happen one day. As is standard practice the staff let the family know and that they needed to come and retrieve her belongings. It was only then that a family member noticed that one of the balloons that they have given their beloved mother and friend was missing. Did someone take one of Marguerite’s balloons and her life? The answer would come but not before others would die just as mysteriously.

78. To Protect and Serve...and Murder : Gerald Schaefer


On July 21, 1972, a man named Gerald John Schaefer picked up two teenage girls who were hitch-hiking. Schaefer told 17-year-old Pamela Wells and 18-year-old Nancy  Trotter that hitchhiking was illegal in Martin County. It wasn’t, but they were young, so they believed him. What this stranger had planned for these two young teens would, thankfully, not happen. The story these two girls would tell officers would lead to a trail of victims and from an unlikely suspect.

77. Leslie "Mad Dog" Irvin: Indiana Serial Killer

A huge thank you to Cynthia Boatright Raleigh for sending us the script for this week's episode.  Her excellent research and writing skills make for an

Three weeks later Wesley Kerr was found dead at the gas station where he worked. Hands tied behind his back and with a gunshot wound to the head. 

It seemed Evansville, Indiana had a killer on the loose.

On October 16, 2009, in Red Oak Oklahoma hunters come across a truck on the side of the road near the top of Panola Mountain.

****Warning****  This episode is not for the squeamish.You have been warned.







Mornington, Victoria Austria is a quiet coastal town that is located about 35 miles or 57 kilometers south of Melbourne. Many folks from Melbourne take day trips to visit the beaches and wineries that Mornington has to offer.

On May 26, 2004, 37 John Sharpe, a lifelong resident of Mornington goes on TV to plead for anyone with any information about his wife and daughter who have been missing since the end of March.
Although John seems like a concerned father, his body language makes the public suspicious. There seems to be more to the story that the tale John Sharpe is telling but no one is prepared for the truth.

Join Jen and Cam as they discuss the Mornington Monster, Family Annihilator John Sharpe.

74. What Happened to Tiffany?



Twenty-year-old Tiffany Sessions is a junior at the University of Florida studying economics and getting excited to get her life started. It is February 9, 1989, and Tiffany had finished all her classes and decided she would go out and take a walk before hunkering down for a night of studying. Tiffany told her roommate she was going to take her usual powerwalk and she would be back soon which meant she would be returning around 6 pm or so.


Six o’clock comes and goes and Tiffany has not come home yet. By 8 pm, her roommate is starting to worry as this was not like Tiffany at all. At 9 pm, her roommate calls the police and then calls Tiffany’s parents to tell them she was not yet home.  It would take a lot of police work and many years of dead-end leads to figure out what just what happened to Tiffany Sessions on that winter day.

73. The Tragic Death of Amora


*Warning: today’s episode is extremely graphic and contains details involving child abuse. Listener discretion is advised.
Image result for amora blaine


Blaine Milam, 18 years old, had just been released from jail and was now deemed a sex offender. It was shortly after his ‘self-imposed’ release that he met Jessica Carson.  Jessica was still in high school in January 2008 when she fell for Blaine. Jessica, however, was not just a high school teen--she was a mom to a baby girl by the name of Amora, which means ‘love.’  While this threesome would join together and create the perfect family they had always dreamed about, this time would not last. Mental illness, drug abuse and religious delusions set in and all come to together ending with a murder of the most innocent.

Join Jen and Cam on Our True Crime Podcast as we discuss ‘The Tragic Death of Little Amora.’

72. Edward Maps: The Beatnik that Beat Feet...Or Did He?

January 1964.  Neighbors alert the fire department that 510 Sarah St in Stroudsburg PA was on fire and Edward, Christine and four-month-old Julie Louise were inside.

The first responders found 23-year-old Christine barely alive on the kitchen floor.  They found Julie Louise not breathing only a few feet away from her mother.  

Numerous searches in the house and surrounding areas were held but Edward Maps was never found. 

The District Attorney named Edward a wanted man for arson and murder. The FBI put him on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List.

But in 1995, the case is reopened. Maybe Edward Maps isn't guilty after all.

Come listen to Jen and Cam talk about Edward Maps: The Beatnik That Beat Feet...Or Did he?

69. The Ohio Sniper: When Hunters Become The Hunted

It is April 1, 1989 and 35 year old Donald Welling was enjoying what he often did on weekend mornings which was taking a jog on the pretty back roads of Tuscarawas County. The peaceful moments of enjoying his run were shattered as a long shot rang out. The rifle bullet struck the middle of his heart killing him instantly.  It was just 19 months later when on November 10, 1990,  when 21 year old Jamie Paxton decided to go out and do some bow hunting with his crossbow. He found a nice area off state route 9, parked his car and got out to take a walk and get a look around. He  left his weapon in the car. As Jamie was strolling along, lost in thought, he didn’t realize a man had pulled up and parked near his car. Again, shots rang out. Jamie fell to the ground after being struck three times from a rifle. The gunman would leave no evidence, leave no witnesses and was just getting started.

Close to 11K athletes from over 200 countries flooded the city for what is considered the most important sports competition.  Over 900 million people globally watched the event.  But in early August,hundreds of people in London turned their attention away from the games to a town just an hour away from the games to  focus on the disappearance of a 12 year old girl

Newspapers reported that Tia Sharp had been staying the weekend with her grandparents. On Friday August 3, about midday, she left their house in New Addington to go to the shops to buy flip flops in Croydon, about 4 miles away. Within 36 hours of Tia disappearance, over 200 people in the neighborhood would be out searching. Celebrities would tweet info to help spread information in hopes of finding the newly turned 12 year old.  By August 10, London will mourn the sexually motivated murder of young, confident, happy child.
